We are really looking forward to a new year at Leigh C of E Nursery and we cant wait to meet and get to know the new pupils and their parents. We have lots of exciting things planned over the year and we invite parents into school on a regular basis.
In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Objectives in line with development matters. We will begin the first half of the Autumn term by getting to know the children and yourselves and allowing the children to settle into the environment and begin to develop good relationships with the staff and their class friends. Throughout the year we will follow all of the major festivals and celebrations in order to inform our planning but most importantly the themes and learning opportunities will be directed by the learning and interests that we observe from your children as they 'play'. In our nursery we always ask the children what they are learning rather than what are they 'playing'. To find out about our half termly curriculum in more detail please follow the link to look at our curriculum maps. Please keep coming back to this page to find out what we have been doing. We will also post any useful information or links that may be of interest to you.
Please take a look below to see what we have been up to each week:
8th September 2017
Welcome back to the start of the new school year at Leigh School Nursery. It has been a quiet week with only having the returning children from last year but I have now met all the new starters and I know that they are all eager to join our class next week.
The children returned well and settled in as though they had never been away. It was lovely to hear all about their summer adventures and to see how grown up they have become since we last saw them. I am excited to see where this year will take us all.
Please be reminded that next week the new hours will be 8:30am till 11:30am, if only staying for the morning session and 12:30pm till 3:30pm if staying for the afternoon session. For those who are in full time then it will be 8:30am till 3:30pm. Also over the next week or so there will be a lot of letters and emails being sent home so please look out for these. Any financial information with regards lunchtime or before and after school care can be organised with Mrs Twigg or Mrs Pilz at the office. Please do not hesitate to ask if you are unsure about anything.

15th September 2017
A huge welcome to our new nursery children this week. They have settled in amazingly and are already learning lots and lots. We have concentrated mostly on getting to know our classroom and each other and building up good relationships and expectations.
I was especially proud of the children who were involved in the PE session with Mr Ashby. They listened well and followed his instructions really well.
Please download Marvellous Me onto your phones or tablets as I will be sending messages regularly for your attention.
I look forward to see what next week will bring. Please check our gallery to see all the learning we have been doing this week by clicking on the link below:
